Mex 1 Sessions with Uncle Mingo

#Mex1SullivansIsland in conjunction with Ear For Music is excited to bring you our next installment of #Mex1Sessions with Uncle Mingo on Sunday, January 19th! This special evening is one you don't want to miss as we are only selling 100 tickets for an intimate experience on the Island. Uncle Mingo is a Charleston-based funk-punk quintet that melds the party-hearty attitude of the Red Hot Chili Peppers with a stronger funk basis and an inclination toward long jams that lean towards prog-rock. Ticket Proceeds go to Carolina Studios whose mission is to provide students a safe environment that fosters creative, educational, and career-focused initiatives through music, technology and media arts.

Doors open at 6pm with music starting at 7pm. Grab some friends and drop in for some dinner and and a chance to meet the band before the show! These would make an epic stocking stuffer, grab your tickets before they sell out!

The sons of Gregg Allman (Devon Allman) and Dickey Betts (Duane Betts) have joined forces to form The Allman Betts Band.

They kicked off their World Tour on March 27, 2019 and sold out twelve of their first eighteen shows. The show features new music, songs from their solo projects and classic Allman Brothers and Gregg Allman tunes in honor of the 50th Anniversary of The Allman Brothers Band. The new album, slated for release on June 28, 2019, was recorded at the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studios and produced by Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price, John Prine and Elvis Presley). Former Allman Brothers Band keyboardist and current Rolling Stones keyboardist, Chuck Leveall, and former Greg Allman Band Hammond B3 player, Peter Levin, both guested on the record.

The Allman Betts Band includes Devon Allman, Duane Betts, Berry Oakley Jr. on bass (son of original Allman Brothers Band bassist Berry Oakley), Johnny Stachela on slide guitar, John Ginty on Hammond B3 (Robert Randolph/Dixie Chicks) and Devon Allman Project percussionists R. Scott Bryan (Sheryl Crow) and John Lum.


Acid rock, traditional blues, folk, soul, free form jazz, and the never ceasing desire to improvise form this mind bending kaleidoscope of sound, energy and vibe.  NPR said “This Nashville blues trio sounds as if it comes to us straight from 1968.” And Rolling Stone lauded, “J.D. Simo spins soulful psychedelic blues rock with an improvisational bent reminiscent of the Grateful Dead and Stevie Ray Vaughan”.  With his band, JD and cohorts have gained a solid fan following from touring and opening for bands such as Blackberry Smoke, The Gregg Allman Band, Warren Haynes, Tommy Emmanuel and others. They have played Bonnaroo, Warren Hayne’s Christmas Jam, Mountain Jam and JD recently joined Phil Lesh & Friends for a night dubbed “Dead Blues” at Terrapin Station.  

Current album on Sony/Red/Orchard was released on March 1, 2019.


For guitarist and singer-songwriter Jackson Stokes, great musicians make great neighbors. Even as a youth weaned on classic rock- his first concert was Lynyrd Skynyrd- Stokes was unaware that living across the street from his St. Louis home was guitarist and singer-songwriter Devon Allman. Allman’s family tree is impressive as the son of Gregg Allman and nephew of Duane Allman of Allman Brothers Band fame. Yet, Stokes knew little of the legendary group. Encouraged by his father, and holding his guitar, the 11-year-old Stokes knocked on Allman’s door.

Blue Dogs 7th Annual Homecoming & 31st Anniversary

This annual celebration at the Charleston Music Hall brings folks who love music together around one important mission: helping to end pediatric cancer by raising funds for cutting-edge research.

The Blue Dogs and their famous musical friends perform an unforgettable show filled with surprises to benefit MUSC Children’s Health. Funds raised each year support Dr. Jacqueline M. Kraveka, who runs the only pediatric oncology research lab in our state.

With the help of special guests like Darius Rucker, Hootie and the Blowfish, Edwin McCain, Radney Foster, Drivin n Cryin, Peter Holsapple and many more local and regional musicians, as well as a generous partnership with Press On Fund who shares this event’s mission, almost half a million dollars have been raised since 2013 to support pediatric cancer research.

Join us for a great time for an even better cause on Sunday, December 29 at the Charleston Music Hall.
